Old post reposted: Disruptive behavior at work

This issue (a post I wrote 2 years ago) is still salient and needs to be revisited often. I wonder how many excellent nurses get fed up with childish, hateful behavior among their associates and leave this profession. It's probably a large number and a terrible loss to our ranks. For a caring profession, we nurses can be unbelievably and randomly cruel to our associates, and it needs to stop. Zero tolerance for lateral violence!
